Contractors from Cattoor Livestock Roundup, a company based out of Nephi, Utah, work with officials from the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Land Management to drive wild horses into a netted chute.  They are penned at the end of the chute and subsequently sexed and sorted.  Young animals are sent for further testing before being put into the adoption circuit; older horses are fertility treated and re-released.  Principles of range management limit the number of animals that a given plot of land can support and, with annual population increases of about 14%, the BLM works to round up excess wild horses.
